Wheatstone Memorial 2010 Mornington Crescent Game

Recommended Posts

Now that I'm no longer in nidd, and applying a parallel jump on the diagonal:

 

Prince Regent

 

I think I can extrapolate the Docklands diagonal and end up in

Caledonian Road

 

Sorry I missed the start of the game - I've been busy interpreting the Miss Jean Brodie variation of Morningside Crescent, Edinburgh's own game.

 

 

That particuarly deviousness needs to be curbed;

 

Upminster Bridge

...has already been played - under the King George Variation it puts you in nidd

 

(this one got me earlier ;) )

Damm, is that King George Variation or King George V Variation? This is of some importance when one considers the different levels of Nidd imposed?

Woody: ...you should avoid Humphing for three progressions.

I see you've been talking to the wife :ph34r:

 

 

Is it posh? No!

 

It's Ealing Common

I see you've been talking to the wife

And most revealing it was too. That plus Ealing Common only leaves one move open to me:

 

Soho Square

So it started again !

 

Since my disastrous try last year which almost ruined the game I've extensively practiced to be able to compete this year.

However despite my laborious efforts I must admit that the level of mastery is still much too high for me.

So this year I'll just admire the game and continue my training and hope to be ready for next year.

Let the best win !

Nonsense. A little bird told me (in between some vigorous pumping) that a certain member of this forum did extremely well in last year's elimination rounds of le Croissant de Marseillaise!

Taking advantage of all this steaminess and Niddifery.....

North Wembley

At least I get the text colour right.

Nice one - allows me to invoke Frumpton's Gambit:

 

Aldgate East

 

(and also handy for Commercial Road)

And north to:

 

Mornington Crescent !

I'm astonished and humbled. In my winning speech I'd like to thank Charles, Humph, Samantha, Sven, and Chris for starting it off, and my mother, and my cat Midge.

Egad! Blindsided.

 

I think I'd like to ask which progression you were using and whether you regard the move as above or below the diagonal, but my provisional judgement is that we probably have this year's winner.

Your ruling is what counts Humph...I mean Chris. ;)

 

It was a bold move but I think Simon has gazumped us all.

Well as everyone knows the direct Northerly gets you double nidd. I actually used the 1971 Frimlington variation, as pioneered by that great player lost to the mists of time General Reginald Frimlington of the 12th Hussars. He pioneered the variation when retreating from enemy fire in Burma in '42. Of course he didn't end up in Mornington Crescent.

 

EDIT: But I did !
